On a mission to engage and inspire audiences through the transformational power of choral music, the Mission Peak Chamber Singers (MPCS) have long been part of the Bay Area choral scene. Established as the Ohlone Chamber Singers in the 1980’s, Mission Peak Chamber Singers struck out as an independent non-profit organization in 2014 after California community colleges withdrew support for choral arts. Now reliant upon the generosity of donors, fundraising and concert ticket sales, MPCS champions the cause of music as a community enterprise and as a medium of social change. Music is our gift to you, and we recognize and are deeply grateful for the steadily increasing support from our audience and donors!
Mission Peak Chamber Singers is our flagship ensemble, performing choral literature that varies in era, region, language, and style in about three concerts a season. This group of enthusiastic singers learns repertoire mostly from sheet music, and are joined by their commitment to the choral art, and their dedication to raising their voices in community. Chamber Singers rehearse Tuesdays from 8:30-9:30pm at Irvington Presbyterian Church in Fremont.
East Bay People’s Choir was created with the intention of making choral music accessible to all. The People’s Choir is a diverse group of singers from all walks of life, backgrounds, and abilities who come to rehearsals united by their joy of singing. The group is free and open to anyone who wants to learn to sing. Music is learned by ear, thus no singing or music reading experience is necessary, and drop ins are always welcome (no audition necessary). People’s Choir rehearsals are Tuesdays from 7-8:30pm at Irvington Presbyterian Church in Fremont.
